Bottomless Pit

Bottomless Pit was formed in the fall of 2005 by erstwhile Silkworm members Tim Midgett and Andy Cohen. Their longtime friends Chris Manfrin (Seam) and Brian Orchard (.22) complete the quartet. 2007 finds the group playing "their blues" - soulful, emotionally intense, and often transcendent postpunk that is as inviting as it is bracing. "Hammer of the Gods" is the first Bottomless Pit album. It is the first release from New Jersey's Comedy Minus One records. It was released November 6, 2007.

Lou Hickey

Lou Hickey
Frustrated with spells in various Glasgow punk bands as the ‘token cute chick’ singing other people’s music, and with a wealth of experience promoting grass-roots level gigs at Glasgow’s 13th Note and Nice & Sleazy, Lou Hickey applied a go-it-alone DIY ethic to a background of classical training, a university degree in music, and singing with jazz and swing bands. The result of these two very different worlds colliding was the self-written, self-engineered and self-produced album ‘New Shoes’.
